Worried about my 3 parrots catching Air Sac Mites from new Canary
A Pet store gave me 2 canaries recently. One is bouncing around his cage. One is moving around a little to eat, and drink, but it makes a sqeaking sound all the time. I thought maybe it was young but in reading on the internet it seems it may be Air Sac Mites.
I am concerned that I have now contamintated my 2 African Greys, and my Quaker by bringing these canaries into my home.
Can the Air Sac Mites travel to the other birds by just being in the same room? Without any of them sneezing or sharing food/water?
Hopefully I can get this bird to the vet asap, like tomorrow.
Thanks for your feedback in advance.
